Re: Missing Boat Found- No Skipper

Do you guys have seen this?

Two people have been rescued from cold Puget Sound waters after falling out of a sailboat.
Seattle Police Det. Renee Witt said Saturday that two people fell off the boat before 4 a.m. and were unable to get back on board. Other people in the boat threw ropes and life jackets to help them stay afloat, but Witt says the people were in the water for a while before friends decided to call 911.

There are some that are thinking in a way to get back alone to the boat if they fall on the water but it seems that some not even with help can get back on board and that is not the first time that I have heard this kind of stories. Those have been lucky but others have died.
